Man in Texas infected with H5N1 bird flu for the second time in the USA. The infected person only suffered from red eyes, which could be related to conjunctivitis.

The virus was recently found in mammals such as foxes, otters and bears. It was recently announced that the virus was also detected on the Antarctic mainland. The threat to the US population from bird flu remains low and that the infection does not affect the agency's risk assessment, according to the CDC.
